Message from Elicia

I just got over strep throat, and I know that being sick is no fun. Because I live here in North America, I’m able to easily get medical help whenever I get sick. But then I remember that quick medical help is something that so many people around the world don’t have. And lots of people are so poor that they are not able to even PREVENT diseases like malaria from attacking their families. So for my 20th birthday, I want to raise money for 100 mosquito nets!

Instead of asking for gifts or celebrating me on this birthday, I want to do this campaign to help others. Each mosquito net costs $10, so you can give 1, 2, 3, or 5 mosquito nets!

Wouldn't it be amazing if we could meet this goal for 100 mosquito nets by my birthday (Feb. 21) or by the end of this month?

Thank you, friends.

God has used this verse to teach me a lot over the past year, and it reminds me that it’s always God who is at work in my life, to fulfill His purpose.

About Mosquito Nets

Mosquitoes are not only a nuisance—they are the deadliest animal in the world. By spreading diseases like malaria, dengue fever, yellow fever, and encephalitis, they kill over 600,000 people every year. Another 200 million people are incapacitated for days at a time.

If a person is given a mosquito net, they can wrap their bed with it. This allows them to sleep without being bitten. This reduces exposure to mosquitoes and decreases the chances of catching diseases, especially among children.

Every $10 donated is enough for GFA to provide a mosquito net to a family in need. This will be given in parts of South Asia most impacted by mosquitos.
